    Pretty sure they'll just email you a steam key so you can unlock it via the steam store. That's how it normally works when steam keys are offered. Has nothing to do with matching up emails.

    I believe there will be two keys, one for Steam, one from the Humble Bundle page.

    They email you the code to "activate the game on Steam' no logging out or shiz like that

    That would surprise me because they use the humble bundle for the soundtrack. More logical would be offering a download via humble bundle and the ability to get a steam key via humble bundle, as a lot of other indi developers have done before them

    They could do that too, it doesn't really matter anyway... if you have the game, you have the game

    They will email you all the details, as is previously said by many PEOPLE.

    Thank you for giving me the least convincing argument ever.

    It is most likely be assigned to your humble bundle and then from there as you can with some games grab a steam key from humble bundle.

    Whatever happens, don't worry you will get your game :)

    This thread has had a lot of contradictory information. Is the game coming out on Steam, non Steam, or both?
  10. The game will have a downloadable, DRM-Free version from the Humble Bundle website, but Steam Keys will also be given out.

    Both. The Humble page will include a direct download of the game and a Steam key.

    Like I said before: The Steam key will appear on your humblestore download page.

    And there will be no email, unless Chucklefish decides to send some emails by themselves.

    what i need to know is if there is an account setup thing being planned because that could cause a lot of confusion, what needs to be done for those who pre-order the game is have an email/pass worded account page on the website where you can download the game when it comes out but also for those who wait and buy it later when the game is out.
    this could also make the multiplayer system a little easier.

    We haven't explicitly worked out how that will work quite yet. We want it to be as automatic as possible.

    The Humble page will include a direct download of the game and a Steam Version key.

    When you buy the game, you will get a link like https://www.humblebundle.com/s?key=xxxxxxxxxxxx.

    There, you (and at first, everybody else, too) can download the soundtrack and later the game. I recommend to create an account to "claim" this page. This way, only you are allowed to use this page.
